Get a custom design created for yourTwitter page that promotes your other pages, business or products that yousell. This space is free to use, so use it!Marketers that have great background info go on to get more clicks, follows and sales.
You want to get more followers onyour page, so keep up with the daily trends – and include them in yourtweets. Tweeting trending topics is a great way to source new followers, and drive more traffic to your websites.
Tweets that contain links are retweeted more often than tweetsthat don’t. If you want a tweet to goviral, or to syndicate properly – say itwith a link. Just use your tweet spaceto promote the link, instead of trying to cram a story in 140 characters.
People love to see that who they’reinteracting with on Twitter – are real. Add unique photos to your Twitterfeed that promote your business. Thekey is to keep these photos unique toyour Twitter page, so don’t syndicate them anywhere else.
